Rukiafan commented on Nintendo Titles Struggle for a Presence in UK ...:

Oddly though Nintendo is selling like hotcakes here in Arizona. There are roughly 200,000 Wii U owners in our state with 4,000,000 people which means 5% of my state's population owns a Wii U. Sure it's no Wii sales-wise, but 5% is still better than GC numbers. ;)



Rukiafan commented on Talking Point: The Logic Behind Game Boy Advan...:

@Doma You do realize that the reason why SEGA failed was because they kept having 1-2 year console generations after the Genesis which alienated their userbase and caused their demise. Even though the Wii U is a sinking ship it'd be suicide to end the generation so soon. The Wii U will last until at least holiday 2015 at the absolute least unless sales pick up in-which-case the console could last through holiday 2016 or longer "doubtful, but not impossible" , there's no way Nintendo would pull a Sega Saturn on us because it would destroy consumer confidence in the company since they usually consider a gaming console a long-term investment that they won't have to replace for several years.



Rukiafan commented on Advance Wars Bringing the Battle to the Wii U ...:

Aww thank you @epona ! I'm sure the game will be no more than $10, but will likely be a little bit more expensive than SNES games due to the technical specs being slightly higher for GBA games. The higher the specs the more difficult it is for companies to properly emulate games from past systems digitally through services such as Virtual Console.

Just look at the PS2 classics that are available through PSN, those games are buggier than a Louisiana swamp during the summer. :P



Rukiafan commented on Nintendo Download: 20th March (Europe):

At least once GBA and DS VC are released things will likely improve since there are a ton of first party titles on those consoles. I think we'll eventually even get the Pokemon games via Wii U VC given the desperate situation the Wii U faces. So I wouldn't count the Wii U VC out just yet.

Plus I'm sure most third parties are still under contract for their GBA and DS games so third parties would either have to release said classic games on the Wii U or not release them at all, so things could improve quite drastically in the upcoming months. ;)



Rukiafan commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

@theblackdragon I completely agree with you! I'd never buy a game like this in a million years, but I wouldn't start a movement against this sort of game under the guise of my own website because that makes it look like it's the view of everyone who works for the website instead of just a personal view.



Rukiafan commented on Nintendo Download: 13th March (Europe):

I just want to know why it's always just 2 games that are released on the Wii U eshop per week....I'm starting to think Nintendo is intentionally drip-feeding us eshop releases to prevent "droughts" but are denying indie releases in favor for their old pre-mario and Zelda snoozefest NES titles...:|



Rukiafan commented on Capcom's Monster Hunter Invades Universal Stud...:

Just so you guys know the Californian Universal Studios had a life-sized Brachydios at their park for awhile too. Universal Studios was responsible for most of the advertising of Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate and Monster Hunter 4. ;)



Rukiafan commented on Feature: Breaking Down What Nintendo's QOL Pla...:

Question.Is Nintendo planning on leaving the video game industry? This ambiguous reveal during the investor meeting doesn't seem like a bad idea, unless this means Nintendo is abandoning the video game industry after the Wii U and 3DS in order to focus on QoL products, because if they are I'll be jumping ship after the current gen since I already live healthy so I have no need for such a product. :|



Rukiafan commented on Nintendo Download: 30th January (North America):

@Light Why not? The pro version is a great controller that feels strikingly similar to a PS1 Dual Shock controller and it's super durable! I've used my Classic Controller Pro for 1,000's of gameplay hours and the buttons all feel like they are new and so do the analog sticks, it's one of the best controllers I've ever had...but whatever you do avoid the standard Classic Controllers because those are quite flimsy and poorly designed. ;)



Rukiafan commented on Two Tribes Teases New Title While Describing T...:

Everyone please calm down I talked to a representative of Two Tribes the other day and found out that Two Tribes actually tried their hardest to bring the level editor to the game, but unfortunately the infrastructure of the game was causing game-breaking bugs when they tried to implement the feature so sadly they had to scrap it. :(

It's still an amazing game as is in my opinion so I'm happy. ;)



Rukiafan commented on Nintendo Direct: Wii U And 3DS Broadcast Comin...:

What the fudge?! I just got an update on Youtube when I launched it, though I haven't even used it yet on my new Deluxe Wii U so maybe it's a previous update....can anyone confirm if there is actually a new Youtube update today?



Rukiafan commented on Unepic:

This game looks quite intriguing, so I'm surprised that there seems to be little interest in this upcoming title. :|



Rukiafan commented on Soapbox: Why Region Locking Is A Total Non-Issue:

I feel that alot of people miss the point, sure there are alot of Japanese games that aren't localized, but what about the European ones that already are translated into english? I would easily be able to play those games and understand them.

Another thing is they claim to want to protect us from culturally inappropriate content, yet that is the very appeal that many have for games created outside their region. I for one am a huge fan of traditional turn based and real-time Japanese RPG's which is something hardly any western developers create and since most Japenese RPG's aren't localized it really irks me. I don't know enough Japanese to play imported games, but I do understand why some people would be willing to get an import console and games to play games that they're interested in.

There will always be people who like the cultural feel of games from particular regions which is why region locking is always counter-productive. Bottom-line people will buy games from other regions if they truly want a game that won't be localized so region locking = lost sales for game publishers and developers.
